“Is college worth it?”.
This is one question that many people have been wondering. Some know the answer, some don’t. Me on the other hand? I really don’t know.
Many people ask this question. Some know the answer, some don’t. Me on the other hand? I’m torn. Let me tell you a little about my education. I graduated with my bachelors in Health Science with a concentration in Physical Therapy. Now to be an actual Physical Therapists you have to obtain your doctorate of Physical Therapy. To be a Physical Therapy Assistant you have to obtain a state license which in the state I was in it would cost over $600!! I decided not to go forward with becoming an actual Physical Therapists (I’ll explain in another blog), but I said I would try to obtain my PTA license.
Now in order to do this, you need money right? Well I tried to get a job, but I could not find one anywhere! I tried fast food, retail, hospitals, EVERYWHERE!!! But I had absolutely no luck. So guess what I did? I went back to work at the movie theater I worked at in high school. A damn movie theater. Now was I embarrassed? Absolutely! Was I ashamed? Of course! But I couldn’t sit at home and wait for someone to call me. Who knew how long that would be? Even today I am still embarrassed about having to go back to work at a movie theater, but hey, everything happens for a reason. Also, I never got my PTA license and I don’t even know if I will try to obtain it.
I’ll tell you another story. I have a high school friend who graduated around the same time as me with a bachelor degree in biomolecular science. Me and her experienced the same type of struggle. She could not find a job either, so she went to work retail and enrolled in cosmetology school! She actually told me that when she applied to these jobs she was told she was either overqualified or under qualified. We also wondered why we even went to college when you have millionaires who barely have a high school diploma. This leads me to my next topic.
